ABRAMOVA, Marianna; POPOVA, Anna  y  GOROKHOVA, Svetlana. Social code in contemporary Russia: advantages and risks of the juridical regulation. Rev. latinoam. derecho soc [online]. 2020, n.31, pp.29-53.  Epub 01-Nov-2021. ISSN 2448-7899.

Considerable attention in Russia today is devoted to the quality of legislation; this can be explained by the definitions of the principles of social and law-bounded state and of protection of human rights. The Constitution of the Russian Federation has proclaimed human rights including social rights, the uppermost value, however, the real movement towards these goals is still contradictory. Therefore, this does not comply with Russia’s stature as a social state because so far Russia lacks a unified federal Social Code. Russia’s current system of laws guaranteeing social rights is erratic, contradictory and difficult to apply; this is due to the fact that the regulation of social legislation is in the hands of both regional and federal state structures. In the period of 2004 to 2017 seven entities of the Russian Federation adopted their own Social Codes, which are to be investigated in the given paper according to these criteria: basic definitions; the goals, the tasks and the structure of these codes; the principles of social legislation; using existing mathematic formulae. According to the authors, the creation of a federal Social Code will promote the required consolidation of the present-day society in Russia. Codification of the legislative branch is extremely important to facilitate the population’s access to the Social Code, and to expend the public’s knowledge about their social rights.
